Photo Major 3.2: Visual Thinking in Contemporary Photography
Course No. PHV 330 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Barry Underwood
In this course, photographic theories, modes and structures will be examined through the issues of narrative and aesthetics. Students will examine contemporary practices, which have emerged with respect toward photography, and hybrid digital media that transmute photographic theories, concepts, forms, and processes. The course will investigate the ways in which photography continues to affect (visual) culture and the way one perceives and understands. The work of selected photographers will provide a framework for comparing photographic philosophies. Required for Photography majors. Open Studio elective with instructor’s signature. Offered spring.
